Turning around

I can't believe everything that's happened in the past 24 hours. Sitting at the vet's office, expecting to hear that my dog was constipated and would just need to take this medicine but instead finding out there was fluid in his abdomen that shouldn't appear in a puppy. Hearing the Doctor try to prepare me for the worst was the worst. I cried so much yesterday you would think I'd be all shriveled up by this point.

We got his blood test results and he has a very low protein level, so we're shoveling some high protein cat food into his system. They drained the fluid and got 400cc's (which is a lot, she showed me) and he already physically feels better in my hands. He's sleeping on my lap right now, causing all feeling in my left foot to be lost but I don't mind. As long as he's improving, I'm happy.

So those potential prompts I mentioned yesterday for the writing sample? I didn't use a single one of them. I wrote about Jersey Shore and didn't like it so I started a new one from scratch about reading. How important it is, what it can do for a child and a person's mental capabilities, etc. I'm not even going to re-read it after Rose gives her thoughts. I'm am done done dunzo with this application. I want to submit it and not think about it again.

Being home after this weekend, I'm finding it incredibly easy to sink back into my routine of past weeks. Wake up late, drink coffee and search for jobs in the morning, then do what I want to do in the afternoon. It's a great routine but I feel like I'm doing something wrong. Am I supposed to be job hunting 24/7?

It's quite nice outside. For the first time in a while it's not raining. Perhaps I will try to incorporate that into my day, all depending on the Tedster. To all the readers: be thankful for what you have and those in your life. Yesterday made me realize how quickly it could all be gone.
